Community Programs for the Handicapped: Proceedings of a Workshop (June 17-19, 1982).
Myers, Richard K., Ed.
The document offers proceedings of a four session workshop titled "Community Programs for the Handicapped," a program to enable participants to inventory and explore community alternatives to the institutionalization of handicapped individuals. Session 1 addresses the concept of normalization and the availability and utilization of community programs for the handicapped. Session 2 looks at provision of programs for the handicapped within the public schools and through a community agency (specifically the Easter Seal Society for Crippled Children and Adults). Problem areas interfering with the concept of normalization are outlined. A third session offers guidelines for securing and improving community programs for the handicapped. The final session discusses the three major principles of normalization: integration, self determination, and normal risk. Appended are a list of participants, a paper on techniques of informal advocacy, a list of legal references, and sample forms. (SW)
